Every day, more riders are discovering your city on two wheels. But they're competing with cars, and often in unfamiliar territory. As cities and bikeshare systems grow, are you ready for accidents that occur?
That’s where Balance for Bikeshare comes in. We provide serious injury coverage for every rider, on every ride. The cost is embedded into each trip for just pennies per ride. If an accident occurs, you'll be making a difference in your rider's life with Balance.
If any of your riders suffer a covered accident, Balance provides $300 a day for up to 60 days in hospital.
Please note: This benefit does not include confinement in a Long Term Acute Care Hospital. What’s a “Long Term Acute Care Hospital?”
There's no time to worry about costs during an emergency. Balance offers an extra $300 per visit payable for treatment in an Emergency Room and $150 per visit for treatment in an Urgent Care Center.
Need a physical therapist? So long as treatment is received within 72 hours of a covered accident, Balance pays $75 a visit for up to 10 visits with a physical therapist. Treatment must begin within 60 days of the accident.
If an ambulance is needed, Balance pays up to $500 to help offset the cost of a ground ambulance and/or up to $5,000 for transportation by air if required.
Please note: this an “Excess Benefit,” and is payable only to the extent that another health insurer or source doesn’t provide coverage. What does “Excess Benefit” mean?
for life-altering injuries, up to $150,000
TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (TBI)
Balance is the first insurance plan to offer a benefit specifically for traumatic brain injury (TBI) from a bicycle accident, with benefits for severe and moderate traumatic brain injuries. What’s considered a TBI?
If a covered accident results in paralysis in one or more limbs, Balance has coverage benefits for quadriplegia, hemiplegia, paraplegia, and uniplegia.
If a loss of or more body members occurs (i.e. arm,leg, hand, foot or eye) as a result of a covered accident, your rider is covered with a benefit up to $50,000.
Your riders, covered.
